Release Notes

This is not release quality code. It has been lightly tested, but some commands are not implemented yet.

I am releasing this early so that some Windows 7 (edit: Does not work in Win 7) users can try it - hopefully I've got a version that will work in Vista and Windows 7 (Note that the EPG commands will just not be available in Win7)...

I expect to release a solid build in the next week or so. Thanks, Tony

Notes from the checkin:

Included in this check in:
  • Fixed "type" command to support shifted keys (allows sending punctuation - e.g. "!@#$%")
  • Attempted to make work with Windows 7 (and Fiji TVPack) - Not verified yet
  • New "music-*" commands - a much faster method of querying / playing audio media items. Each command can be filtered by artist name (full or partial) or album name (full or partial). Also supports serving the album cover. Non-action results (queries) are cached for performance
  • New "photo-*" commands - Queries / plays photo media items. Each command can be filtered by tags or dates. Also supports serving individual photos. Indexes based on tags and dates are cached to improve performance. Also resized photos that have been served are cached.
